Important Information about your Health Records

NHS England are now able to automatically extract personally identifiable information about you from our computer system, using its powers under the Health and Social Care Act 2012. At the end of January 2014 all households in England will receive an information leaflet called "Better information means better care". Please read the leaflet carefully. If you have not received the leaflet you can read it here.

If you do not want your details to be extracted, complete one of the opt out forms which can be obtained from Reception or downloaded from the Care Data page. Please note Patients who have opted out of the Summary Care Record (SCR) will still need to complete an opt out form.

 

 

 

Care Data

your care dataInformation about you and the care you receive is shared, in a secure system, by healthcare staff to support your treatment and care.

It is important that we, the NHS, can use this information to plan and improve services for all patients. We would like to link information from all the different places where you receive care, such as your GP, hospital and community service, to help us provide a full picture. This will allow us to compare the care you received in one area against the care you received in another, so we can see what has worked best.

Information such as your postcode and NHS number, but not your name, will be used to link your records in a secure system, so your identity is protected. Information which does not reveal your identity can then be used by others, such as researchers and those planning health services, to make sure we provide the best care possible for everyone.

You have a choice. If you are happy for your information to be used in this way you do not have to do anything. If you have any concerns or wish to prevent this from happening, please speak to reception staff or download an opt out form below and leave it at reception.

Further information can be found in the “How information about you helps us to provide better care” below.

We need to make sure that you know this is happening and the choices you have.
